Ajex and my cat- how our wedgetail became a family member

by Jas

i was about fourteen and i was in the backyard and my cat was hissing at these magpies that were swooping it. My cat, Salem (yes a fan of Sabrina the teenage witch) is the most precious tame cat and never would hurt anything or anyone, well i was like ? whats going on, i ran closer and found my cat crouching over a baby wedge tailed eagle, at first i was like where did it come from? after getting rid of the other bird i took my cat and the bird in my jumper back to the house where i showed my dad. at first we didn't know what it was but my uncle a vet came over and saw it, we ended up naming it Ajex like the cleaning product and we still have him; he comes and goes from our large property and is the most graceful caring thing ever; funnily enough this is the strangest part, my cat, although four years on is still protective of Ajex and Ajex loves him too...
